At midnight on Thursday, 40-year old dentist Pankaj Narang was beaten to death by a group of young men in west Delhi's Vikaspuri. The men dragged Narang out of his house on the road and beat him up with hockey sticks and bats till he died.

Although Narang fell and hit his head against the road, his assailants did not stop and kept hitting him on the head. The police said today that five people had been arrested and another four minors apprehended in connection with the murder, including the mother of Naseer, a 23-year old man with whom Narang had an altercation barely minutes before the assault on him.

According to the police a little past midnight, Dr Narang was playing cricket with his son and nephew at his home, celebrating India's victory over Bangladesh in the World Twenty20 tournament.

The ball bounced out on the road and Dr Narang's 8-year old son went to retrieve it. Just then Naseer and a minor speeding on a motorbike, grazed the child. After that Narang stopped Naseer and a heated argument followed.

After the argument Naseer drove off only to return after 10 minutes with 10 people who attacked the dentist. According to witnesses the people who had gathered tried to intervene but were attacked as well. Dr Narang died on the way to the hospital.

As per the police, the accused live in a slum just behind the dentist's home and did casual jobs at a local market. A case of trespassing, murder, rioting and attempt to murder has been registered against the accused.
